Figure 3

Schematical example of the 'Magic bullet' approach in consumer applications, where an antibody fragment (in this case a llama variable heavy-chain antibody fragment; VHH) recognising a spot on textile, is coupled to an effector molecule (in this case A. ramosus peroxidase; ARP). ARP is a peroxidase, which utilises hydrogen peroxide to catalyse the oxidation of a wide range of organic and inorganic compounds, which makes the enzyme suitable for use in bleaching processes [139].
